Ethnicity and Racism in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy:
Whose problem is it anyway?

Speaker:  Helen Morgan, Jungian Analyst

Historically the matter of an individual’s ethnicity, culture and the process of racialisation has largely been ignored in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Whilst most trainings have introduced seminars on the subject, it is rarely considered in the theoretical aspects of the trainings in an integrated and ordinary way, nor is it often discussed in clinical seminars and supervision. This colour-blind position fails to see or acknowledge difference, hence the white individual is able to avoid the shame and guilt involved in owning any racist thought. For the black trainee an important aspect of their identity and experience is not allowed expression, making the training experience a difficult and incomplete one. This talk suggests that this situation has implications, not only for potential black applicants and patients, but also for our professional organisations where this covert form of racism shields ourselves and our theories from a potentially creative and enlivening challenge.

Helen Morgan is a Fellow of the British Psychotherapy Foundation and a training analyst and supervisor for the Jungian Analytic Association within the BPF. She works mainly in private practice as an analyst and also supervises in both the individual and the group setting. Her background is in therapeutic communities both with adolescents and in adult mental health. She is interested in developing an understanding of racism from a psychoanalytic/Jungian analytic perspective and has written a number of papers on the subject. She is currently chair of the British Psychoanalytic Council.

Working with Mental Hackers and Backroom Thinkers

Speaker: Ariel Nathanson

Deception and distortion of truth and reality is a feature in all perverse behaviours.  However, knowing how to work with patients who use deception is not only restricted to those working with the extreme. In this talk, Ariel Nathanson will discuss his work with a particular group of patients who present as backroom thinkers and mental hackers.  Although very different from each other and not always perverse, these patients operate from a mental backroom – a control centre usually hidden from ordinary relational view.  There, looking out from behind their eyes, they observe, collect information, analyse it and then prescribe to those around them.  They hack into others’ minds without being noticed in order to control them from within, like a puppeteer hiding in the shadows of the backstage.

Not all backroom hackers use their “power” to groom victims and hurt others.  They often present in much milder ways as marketing experts who no longer know where the truth lies, or as either superheroes or villains, who differ in aim but share an excitement from a sense of power derived from dark trauma and loss.

There are huge implications to working with this patient group as they present in a variety of ways and in different settings, from children and adolescents in residential care to the individual clients in private consulting rooms.

Ariel will use his experience in working with both victims and perpetrators in formulating a clear picture of these patients and the clinical implications to working with them.

Ariel Nathanson is a Consultant Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychotherapist.  He has been working for the NHS for more than 20 years, most of them at the Portman Clinic in London where he specialises in the assessment and treatment of children, adolescents and young adults who display perverse, delinquent and violent behaviours.  He consults to professional networks about young people presenting as harmful to others.  He has a private practice, where he clinically works with adolescents and adults, and as an organisational consultant to therapeutic communities for highly disturbed young people. Ariel is a clinical supervisor and consultant to other clinicians and front-line workers who engage violent young people in gangs and in prisons.

'Keeping Risk in Mind'

A whole day conference of presentations and workshops

This conference is open to psychoanalytic and psychodynamic psychotherapists and      other clinicians whose work brings them into contact with crucial issues of safety and risk.  The day will be structured to allow ample time for discussion of these themes and how we hold such risks in mind, whether we work as individual practitioners or as part of a team.  

Why has risk become such an intense preoccupation for clinicians and in the wider political and social context? Thoughts for 2020.

Speakers: Margaret Rustin and Michael Rustin

Jung’s Red Book: Where did it come from and why did it matter ?

Speaker:  George Bright

The publication of Jung’s Red Book, Liber Novus, almost ten years ago, has challenged the Jungian professional world to revise the various ways in which we have received and developed Jung’s thought and psychotherapeutic approach. In this talk,  Liber Novus  will be put into the context of Jung’s life and work 1903 – 1928 as a way of assessing how contemporary students and practitioners of Jung’s legacy might reassess our understanding of Jung.

George Bright is a Supervising and Training Analyst of The Society of Analytical Psychology. He is also a founder of The Circle of Analytical Psychology, a group which offers a six-term course in London to study Jung’s Red Book, Liber Novus. He works in private practice in Kensington.

“Starving the Black Material in my Stomach”
On the Use of Dreams in the Healing Process of Eating Disorders

Speaker:  Yoram Inspector

The sufferers of Eating Disorders are caught in a concrete, mechanical and sterile world in which their self-esteem and worth become solely dependent on their body shape and weight. On the surface life is reduced to soulless repetitive rituals, calorie counting and compulsive weighing, yet, being attuned to the patients’ dreams in the process of psychotherapy might create the gateway to the vital psychic life that exists underneath the surface of the symptoms, allowing access to a dialogue with their deep relational wounds and traumas. I will try to demonstrate how the Jungian approach which believes in the compensatory function of the unconscious can be especially useful in these complex, life threatening disorders.

Yoram Inspector is a consultant psychiatrist and a Jungian analyst. He is a member of the Society of Analytical Psychology and The New Israeli Jungian Association. He has 25 years’ experience in treating Eating Disorders in various clinical settings. For the last 8 years he has been working full time in the NHS at the Psychological Medicine Unit of St Mark’s Hospital which provides psychotherapy for patients who suffer from various gastrointestinal diseases and disorders.
